Tinderbox is all about bringing people together through music and helping build a sense of community. We work closely with a number of community groups and organisations to do this in different settings, and try to bring everyone together through our Tinderbox Hubs and other projects.
We run over 100 youth and community workshops a year with young people of all ages and levels of ability, and everyone comes together though exciting events, unusual orchestras and bands, and other productions.
Tuesdays during term time 6-8pm (Free), North Edinburgh Arts in Muirhouse.
Bands, Instrumental lessons, Songwriting, Rapping, Sound-engineering, Arts/Crafts and more!
Age 10-18, from complete beginners to experienced young musicians. An amazing mix of people, ages and experience. Bursting with creativity, community spirit and a lot of fun! Everyone welcome!
